Industry suppliers team up with INK+BEYOND 2014

CJF J-talk: Does The Press Gallery Matter?

Members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery recently voted unanimously to assert their right to scrum Prime Minister Stephen Harper so they could "fulfill our functions as journalists in a democratic society." The vote was a reaction to restrictions on access to the PM and his ministers—and a revealing glimpse of how the ground has shifted on Ottawa political reporters.

The regular prime ministerial press conference is a thing of the past. Senior bureaucrats hesitate to brief journalists. The PM and ministers take their message on the road or send it out on weekly video clips. Opposition MPs use the same techniques.

Is the influence of political reporters on the wane in the face of shrinking resources, wide use of social media, and the distance Ottawa puts between government and reporters? On Wednesday, April 9, the Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) will host a unique panel discussion in Ottawa to evaluate how national media coverage of the government is changing.
